      Expected bankroll? What kind of a question is that?
      When you reach 1000SP you can as much as $10k or as low as $0.

      There's no "expectation" of that sort in poker.

      What you can more realistically expect you can estimate through some calculations.
      For instance you play NL10 SH, and you've played over a large sample of hands like 100k hands of that limit. Then you check what's your winrate in bb/100 and your average rake paid per 100bb. Then you calculate how much rake you need to pay to reach 1000SP. After that you can estimate with the rake you need to pay how much hands you need to play. So with that result of number of hands you need to play to reach 1000SP you can then apply your winrate in bb/100.
      That's an estimate you can do but without any guarantees since you can hit an up or downswing at any time, drastically altering the estimate value you calculated with winrate in X number of hands.

      So you shouldn't really be focusing on that but rather on improving your game and playing many hands. Otherwise it will probably affect your game in a negative way.

      If you have 50$+, you are doing very well. If you are not broke, you are fine too.

      Maybe................ I have a nice comfy spot under a bridge now, and it has internet connection.
